This is the very first version of the Atari 800 operators manual, written in 1979 by Liza Loop. Only 200 of this version were printed. There are many differences between what's shown in this manual and the actual production hardware and software. An interview with Liza Loop is here:  https://archive.org/details/LizaLoopInterview

Scans from a binder of music related material from the Atari Club Med resort project. This contains a combination of Atari internal information and notes, and curriculum for the customers at Club Med. I've organized the material as best I can deduce, given the dividers in the binder. Includes information about several music programs for the Atari 8-bits, including Rumdrums, Music Composer, AtariMusic I and II.
